No there are no registration costs involved for the idea owner, but the BRIDEE organisation is not covering any out of pocket costs incurred during the project either.
Every business student needs to write a business plan in a team anyway. So why not team up with an entrepreneur. You will - experience the added value of design - get more and dedicated coaching sessions - participate in a workshop on design - get more and versatile feedback on your business plan - broaden your network - have the opportunity to compete in the “Business Plan of the Year Competition” and win other prices
The outcome of BRIDEE is a win-win-win situation for three parties: - Business students: they are part of a complementary team and can experience the added value of design. - Designers: they are part of a complementary team and can build up their business know-how (through workshops, coaching sessions, ...) and a network with business people. - The Idea owners: they are part of a complementary team and will end up with know-how, a network and more importantly a business plan (market study, competitors analysis, financial plan, etc.).
